Independent Contractors Abroad
OK - here is a question for this new global forum group -- if we contract with individuals in various countries (e.g., India and Pakistan) for programming jobs, do we need to consider each individual country's laws regarding the status of an independent contractor vs. an employee, taxes, etc ? Do U.S. law apply to any of these relationships? We are new to this and want to figure out how much we are opening ourselves up to if we go abroad with our programming projects.
Thanks for any help!
